Committed to Us
23 Be careful not to forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the Lord your God has forbidden. 24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.
Marriage is defined as the legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman. This is a relationship in which the man and woman are devoted to each other. If there is no communication between the husband and wife, the relationship will start to get weaker.
God makes is easy to understand when he wants a relationship with humans. He doesn’t want us to forget the covenant that God made with us and doesn’t us to follow an idol that will take our eyes and hearts off of God. What kind of idols are in our lives? It is anything that takes our time and energy and is contrary to the covenant that God has already established with us. God is a jealous God and it is like a marriage in which we are committed to God and He is committed to us. We know that He is always at work in our lives, but sometimes we need to take our eyes off of the idol in our lives and to put our eyes back on God.
